The good… I think Wayne Brady isn’t really a bad host at all. Very likable and interacts nicely with the contestants. He doesn’t host it like Monty did but to be honest I did not expect him to. I also like the fact that the set is bright and doesn’t look like a Millionaire-wannabe clone. Too many game shows try to copy that vibe even if their atmosphere is nothing like Millionaire (see GSN’s Chain Reaction, Donny’s Pyramid). Glad to see that isn’t the case here. Also the show seems to be much more tasteful than say, the 2003 revival.
And now to what I don’t like… I still don’t like the idea of this show being one hour. I didn’t like it in 2003, I didn’t like it with Game$how Marathon, and I don’t like it now. This is a much better show as a single 30 minute entity. It’s just way too stretched out to me the way it is.
Not a bad show. I don’t hate it but I’m not in love with it. In all honesty, if it still in the end came down between this show and Pyramid, as mentioned previously, I would have chosen the latter, as I enjoy that show much more. Or at least they could have picked up both shows and ran them 30 minutes each.
